There’s a boat load of My Nintendo Platinum to earn right now

My Nintendo Platinum

Two 100 point Platinum trials, and some other missions

There’s a ton of My Nintendo Platinum to pick up right now, thanks to a confluence of trials among standard Switch Online missions that are running concurrently. Here’s a quick rundown!

My Nintendo Platinum 2

Do the Stardew Valley trial (or just boot up the version you own)

So note for everything discussed on this page, you do need Switch Online. But there’s more linked below that you can try if you don’t.

Trials generally net you 100 Platinum Points for partaking in them. All you need to do is boot up the game, then wait for the splash screen (the Nintendo logo) to finish. As soon as you see an in-game bootup screen (usually developer or publisher credits), you’re good to go. You can quit and the points will be added to your total (check your total by going to the Switch Online app). You can also check the “missions” portion of the Switch Online app (the red stamp icon at the top) to verify that the trial cleared and your points are good to go.

You can find the Stardew Valley trial here. It runs until June 20 at 11:59PM PT.

Do the Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes trial the same way

The other 100 Platinum Point bonus trial running at the moment is Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes. It’s run the same way: just load it then quit.

You can find the trial here.

Finish all the other missions

Beyond the above, there’s several other missions that are running this week, accessible from the Switch Online app, in the missions section:

  • Play a game with online play (anything will do)
  • Use the app (you just need to load it once)
  • Play Kirby’s Dream Land 3 in the SNES app
  • Back up save data

To clear the latter mission, just load up a game, go to the options menu, then “save your changes.” Quit, go to the home screen, press “+” and manually upload/backup that save if the Switch isn’t doing it already. It’ll finish out the mission.

There’s more you can do too

As a reminder, if you want physical rewards, you can find our full Platinum Point guide here, which has been updated with details on weekly missions: bookmark it for when you need quick points for a reward. A handful of points is incredibly easy to get, as that’s basically just 15 minutes with Super Mario Run, or a quick sign-on to the 3DS or Wii U 3Shop. Also remember that any shipments are bundled together, so you can pay a flat rate for multiple items instead of paying it each time. Just know that items go out of stock on My Nintendo frequently, and some are never restocked.
